lyrics

(Dreams can be broken, love can be lost. But Hope, will always stay with you. As long as you keep it.. let’s go!)



Verse 1:

He’s a shooting star, with a future big as the sky,

Having a hard time moving, so he fizzles inside.

Feeling in the dark, losing vision and pride,

He’s missing his Pops, wishing he was with him to guide.

Cause since he’s been alive, always had the newest sneakers,

Now the only thing he has from Daddy is his features.

Clashing with his teachers, he ain’t having what they’re preaching,

Decent kid, acting like a bastard-slash-weakling.

After school, seeking drama, all the kids teasing,

He throws like a girl, cause his Momma had to teach him.

Knights with body armor even have soft days,

But he’s a victim of his father’s karma, lost in a maze.

Tryna find his way out, but weighing on his mind,

Is the weight of a world that’s waiting for him to shine.

He’ll make it in time, but for now he’s gotta cope,

Cause when you’re feeling all alone, your best partner is Hope, cmon..



Chorus:

This song’s for the children, I want you to keep your head up!

Talking to the single mothers, that think they ain’t got anyone..

This song’s for my homies, for everyone, if you’re down and out,

Just know that we, will hold you down! Hold you down..



Verse 2:

Earth spinning out of control, zoned-out, all alone,

Feeling like she lost a part of her soul.

Had goals, now she’s all on her own,

Putting food on the table, plus the pot on the stove.

Kinda hard to go from having visions of carats,

To mad that her little man won’t finish his carrots.

Used to push a carriage, happily talking marriage,

Now she’s embarrassed to say where her child’s Dad is.

Status changed, Earth mad at the rain,

But the same dirt that caused that pain, brought the change,

And copped that Range, that she can’t afford the payment on,

Blame it on the game that she’s remaining just a Baby’s Mom.

Since she lost the baby weight, all she heard is, “Baby wait”,

Waiting on the day to get relief from all her baby’s weight.

Living day to day, but for now she’s gotta cope,

Cause when you’re feeling all alone, your best partner is Hope, cmon..



Chorus:

This song’s for the children, I want you to keep your head up!

Talking to the single mothers, that think they ain’t got anyone..

This song’s for my homies, for everyone, if you’re down and out,

Just know that we, will hold you down! Hold you down..



Verse 3:

Sun feeling eclipsed, no where to run, he sits,

Reliving his grind, them times filling up clips.

Mind full of flicks of little man and Ms Right,

Feeling like he did them wrong, tryna get ‘em right.

All his life was spent having pockets full of lint,

So he sacrificed his presence to fill ‘em with presidents.

Never hesitant to get involved, he ran free.

Back against the wall, he’d do it all for his family.

Now he can’t be there, so inside he searches,

Looking for a sign, shine deeper than the surface.

Outside he purchased, shoes, matching purses,

But when the camera’s off, all that flash is worthless.

Used to work with weight, now he works them weights,

Hoping that his Earth will find him worth the wait.

Circling the date, but for now, he gotta cope,

Cause when you’re feeling all alone, your best partner is Hope, cmon..



Chorus:

This song’s for the children, I want you to keep your head up!

Talking to the single mothers, that think they ain’t got anyone..

This song’s for my homies, for everyone, if you’re down and out,

Just know that we, will hold you down! Hold you down..
